In an interview with CBS News, George Clooney talks about his new movie and cutting his own hair. Although the interview focused mainly on Clooney directing a movie, “The Midnight Sky,” the two also talk about quarantine.
During the interview, Clooney revealed that he has been cutting his hair for years. His flawless locks always seem to be perfectly manicured. One would assume that he pays an exorbitant amount of money to keep his rugged looks kept up. In fact, he does his own hairstyling.
Tracy Smith of CBS News talked with Clooney about his projects during Covid-19.
Smith asks Clooney, “Are you enjoying being home all the time now?”
Clooney responds quickly talking about how he’s keeping busy and staying healthy. However, he isn’t necessarily enjoying his time stuck at home.
“Well, look: no, of course not. It’s been a while since I did, you know, 15 loads of laundry in a day and mopped floors and, you know, all these doors over here I stained! You know, I always say I felt like my mother in 1964, ’cause she had two kids and no help. And I don’t know how she did it now. I have more sympathy for her now than ever.”
Clooney and His Hair
Clooney continues to talk about how other things are affected by his time at home, most notably, his hair routine. This though has not changed in years.
“Uh-huh. I’ve been cutting my own hair for 25 years,” he exclaimed.
Tracy Smith is astonished by this and presses him on it, “So, it has nothing to do with quarantine?” But, Clooney is clearly proud of his haircutting ability and says that it is really easy.
“Nah. Look, my hair’s, like really like straw, you know? And it’s so easy to cut. You can’t really make too many mistakes. So years ago I bought a thing called a Flowbee, which when we were kids – “
“‘You did not!’ said Smith. ‘The infomercial?'”
Clooney did an infomercial for “Flowbee” where he was given a handful of hair cutting tools. He still has them and continues to put them to good use.
“Yeah. It comes with a vacuum cleaner and the clippers. Yeah. I still have it. … Listen, man, it works!” he smiled. “Now, I wouldn’t do it to my wife…”
Clearly, Clooney has been doing something correctly over the years. The legendary actor, and his famous hair, has two academy awards along with six other nominations.
